AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 - 3:07pm
Iuri Moscardi (PhD student, CUNY)

Saturday, November 30, 2019

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 5, 2020

I'll be submitting a proposal for a panel on *Medieval Neurodiversity* to the Annual meeting of the Canadian Society of Medievalists conference, to be held at the 2020 Congress in London, Ontario, at the University of Western Ontario, June 3-5.  Discussions could tie in to medieval disability studies in a number of ways, including:

 

- medieval mental states/mental health, queer minds, nonbinary minds, anxious minds

- depictions of radical introversion (e.g., Diogenes)

- mental complexity in Middle English (e.g., Hoccleve)

- medieval social anxiety (e.g., Merlin and social exile in Monmouth, de Boron, et al.)

The 9th annual Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture will take place on February 21, 2020, and we plan to explore how we access sexuality and information about sex. Given the many barriers to access, from geography to ability to class and race, who is allowed to explore or express their sexuality and who is limited? And how do we break down these barriers?
